Even though our building is closed, we give thanks that our Open Arms Preschool continues to serve our community by offering an online summer camp and playgroup. Each week has a different theme and children will sing, dance, read stories, and get art project ideas to do at home. The Summer Camp program is great for children ages 3-5 and the Play Group is for children 12 months to 2 1/2 years old. There are eight weeks to choose from or families can sign-up to do them all. Thank you to Misa and her staff for coming up with creative solutions when we are not able to gather face-to-face.

Daily Bible Verse

  • Matthew 15:32-39

    34Jesus asked them, "How many loaves have you?" They said, "Seven, and a few small fish." 35Then ordering the crowd to sit down on the ground, 36he took the seven loaves and the fish; and after giving thanks he broke them and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds. 37And all of them ate and were filled; and they took up the broken pieces left over, seven baskets full.
